Donald Trump Is Void Of Empathy, He Is Unfit To Lead The Country: Khizr Khan


Donald TrumpReacting to Donald Trump calling his son a hero, Khizr Khan, father of Captain Humayun Khan, who died in 2004 Iraq war, on Sunday said that empathy of the Republican presidential nominee is “fake” and asserted that he cannot be trusted.

“What he said originally — that defines him . . . People are upset with him. He realizes, and his advisers feel that was a stupid mistake. That proves that this person is void of empathy. He is unfit for the stewardship of this great country,” said Khizr Khan in a telephonic interview with The Washington Post.

Donald TrumpIn a written statement later on Saturday, Donald Trump — who has proposed suspending Muslim immigration to the US — elaborated that Khan’s son, Captain Humayun Khan, who was posthumously awarded a Gold Star and Purple Heart, was a “hero” who should be “honored.” He went on to say that “the real problem here are the radical Islamic terrorists who killed him, and the efforts of these radicals to enter our country to do us further harm.

Donald Trump had said Khan appeared “very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me.” He also question why Khan’s wife did not speak. “She was standing there, she had nothing to say, she probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say, you tell me,” Donald Trump said.
